The Weasley’s: why they’re family goals

In my last post, I talked about how Bonnie Wright and Rupert Grint, aka Ginny and Ron Weasley, reunited recently and it got me thinking about how awesome the Weasley family is. They’re so welcoming and loving and everything you want in a family and that’s what makes you love them. This post is dedicated to the Weasley’s.

I’m first going to talk about the ultimate woman, Molly Weasley! She’s such a badass lady but also a sweetheart. The fact that she welcomed Harry into their family so early on makes Molly one of the most influential people Harry had in his life, in my opinion. She has seven children and she still made Harry feel as though he was special and was apart of a family and that’s not something that’s easy to do. And OH MY GOD, my favorite part that includes Molly, which I’m sure it’s everyone else’s as well…. “Not my daughter, you BITCH!” YAAAASSSS GIRLLLLL! That is the most badass saying I’ve ever heard! And also, it’s so significant… It’s right after Fred is killed, Bellatrix is fighting Ginny, Molly’s only daughter, so naturally Molly has to intervene and let Bellatrix know who’s boss! She’s still so hurt from the death of Fred but yet, under all of that hurt, she’s determined not to lose another child and that shows her fierceness. You go Molly, you’re the shit!

And let’s just talk about Arthur Weasley’s obsession with muggles. As a muggle, I would like to say thank you, Arthur, for loving me. A majority of the wizarding world either hates muggles or doesn’t understand them and doesn’t care to understand them and for him to not just want to understand them but to be literally obsessed with how we all live. I just love that when he worked at the Ministry of Magic in the Misuse of Muggles Artefacts Office, he purchased a muggles car and the first thing he thought to do with it is bewitch it to fly. Like only Arthur Weasley right? And of course, we can’t forget his weird but interesting curiosity for the rubber duck. Which I guess he’s right, what is the point of a rubber duck? Thank you for loving us, Arthur!

Also, I would like to publicly thank Fred and George for making crack up every time they spoke. They might have been the funniest people I’ve ever seen. They make me want to have a twin. It seems so cool having someone who looks and acts just like you, it’s your own personal best friend! I think that’s why it’s so hard for me to accept Fred’s death. Like WHY JK ROWLING, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO SPLIT THEM UP? Sorry, I’m just not over it. Also, I’m pretty sure whenever we saw one twin, we always saw the other twin and there’s no other way we’d want it. And we just love that they finish each other’s sentences like it’s no big deal… cause that’s normal! And thank you, Fred and George, for making Umbridge run out of the Great Hall screaming for her life. The highlight of my life.

I’m going to talk about book Ginny for a second because she’s kind of a badass like her mom. She sticks up for herself and she’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind. Like in the Half-Blood Prince book when Ron is mad at her for kissing Dean Thomas in public, she yells back at him that he’s just jealous because everyone’s kissed someone and the only person he’s ever kissed was his Aunt Muriel. The moment I read that I was like OOOHHHH SHIITTT GINNYYYY! Like damn, that’s a low blow but she doesn’t care one bit and I love it. But at that moment when Ron is mad at her, he basically calls her a slut for kissing in public and the fact that she stands up for herself like that is such an empowering moment. It’s upsetting because we don’t really see that side of Ginny in the movie. I think that scene would’ve been a very pivotal moment for her in the movie. We sort of just see the Harry-obsessed girl but not the “I can stand up for myself, thank you very much” girl. Don’t get me wrong, she’s definitely a fighter in the movies as well, like in Order of the Phoenix, she still goes to the Ministry of Magic to fight but there’s so much more to her that the movie forgets to bring to life! When she’s fighting at the Ministry, she uses the Reductor curse and she looks so shocked that it worked… like no girl, own that shit! And let’s just remember she grew up with 6 brothers, that’s a lot for anyone but handled it! Don’t worry Ginny, we all know you get your womanly badassness (I know that’s not a word, just go with it) from your mother!

Bloody hell, how could we forget about Ron! Man, sometimes he can give me a major headache. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve actually gotten pissed at him because he’s gotten mad at Hermione for talking to another guy or some stupid shit. UM RON, if you wanted to take Hermione to the Yule Ball, you should’ve asked her! Don’t get all pissed off if she’s going with someone else and is actually having fun. Geez louise. But I forgive him because we all have anger and jealousy problems, right? I love Ron though, he’s such a loyal friend to Harry right from the beginning. Although, he does get mad at him a couple times for stupid stuff but hey, what friends don’t? Anyways, Ron tries to act all cool but we all know that he cares for his family more than anything. In Deathly Hallows when they’re traveling, looking for horcruxes, he won’t stop listening to the radio, hoping that none of his family’s names will be called. It might not seem like a big deal, like he’s just listening to a radio, but in reality he’s literally listening to the radio for weeks nonstop. That’s love. So I forgive you for being an asshole a lot of the time, Ron!

The first video shows Ron listening to the radio and the second video shows Ron explaining why he listens.

I’m not going to go too into them that much but Bill, Charlie, and Percy, the three oldest Weasley siblings, are just as badass, family oriented, and awesome as the rest of them. We have someone who was attacked by a werewolf, someone who deals with dragons, and then Percy. Just kidding, Percy’s pretty smart! After screwing it up with his family, he redeemed himself so we like you Percy! The Weasley’s have their problems but what family doesn’t? They’re the most welcoming and loving family there is. They will do anything for the people they love and that includes sacrificing their lives. They’ve done more than enough for Harry and the wizarding world and who knows, if it wasn’t for them helping Harry, maybe Voldemort would’ve survived and he could’ve came after the muggle world so as a muggle, I thank you Weasley clan, and you are family goals.
